  1. If Ken is still thinking of how to fit current world topics into this thing, he will never finish it.
  2. Yeah I am gonna have to agree with SBR on the Archie Reboot. A new number 1 wouldn't have mattered. The reboot was poorly handled but it was mainly due to the circumstances that forced it to happen. It would've needed to been a clean cut, toss out the old continuity all together and start fresh but that would have pissed off long time Archie fans immediately, Ian tried to salvage as much as he could and make it somewhat cohesive for the fans sake. Also, Archie already shot themselves in the foot a long time ago with how they handled the comic. They stopped caring. They weren't promoting it, the editor or creatives were the only ones doing the promoting. IDW has shown to be more behind the comic than Archie had.
  3. And here is the excuse he will be using as to why the app is yet again delayed. "Raves and gasps of amazement"...I will be honest, that is the best fiction writing he has ever done...
  4. You go to an image saying April Fools.
  5. I would like to see more villains but for characters other than Sonic. Like a personal rival/villain for Amy. I'm sure that Tangle and Whisper will run into a threat that isn't just Eggman in their mini-series.
  6. This! Which has been my main point since the beginning...do ANY of these characters feel like the characters people read, drew fan art of, wrote fan fics of, hell even loved?! No...no they are not. They may look the same, Penders may claim they are the same but if you actually look yourself, they are shells of the characters they were. That's probably the most depressing thing out of all of this. A guy who created these characters ended up bastardized them.
  7. ...why even bring this up if you just want to start trouble? There is no reason for this. The comments on it are especially frustrating. I swear this guy knows what he was doing when he posted it.
  8. Worlds Unite was the problem. They should have set that as a separate miniseries that didn't interrupt the main books. Still take place within the time frame that it did but should have had a teaser at the end of one issue and a "Takes place after Worlds Unite" at the beginning of the next.
  9. https://twitter.com/KenPenders/status/1019628498338525184 Finally confirmation of an app. And it's...not unlike any other comic app. Also how damn small is that data file text? If you were reading it on a phone it would be impossible.
  10. Ian commenting on the backlash of #6's final page. Looks like there is more to the story than what we are seeing.
  11. Unless you go by Penders usually "inside knowledge", then it's an open and shut case for Scott. An open and shut case that apparently takes a very long time and has no public records of any updates within the past year... Pretty much this. Ken has proven himself to be just as manipulative as those he says are out to hurt him and his creativity. Ken loves to play the victim and starts every argument saying that "Archie can use my characters anytime so as long as they pay me". While that is a reasonable thing to ask and I agree Archie should have paid royalties to him and other creators, the major problem is there are various terms and conditions within that short statement that people seem to not realize and that are incredibly unreasonable. He wanted editorial rights over what was done with his characters, overruling even Archie/Sega. You can't do that with a licensed comic; any comic really that you didn't produce yourself. He has even stated these conditions back when the lawsuit had just wrapped up. He laid out a laundry list of rules that were laughable. However, the major problem is that a lot of his fanbase chooses to ignore that he has ever said these things when he has gone on record about it.
  12. Wow this first page is just layered with the message "I can't believe they didn't give me Knuckles"...
  13. What could have been...these look so epic!
  14. But that's more so she "ruined" the comic by not being Sally. How can one ruin the comic by only appearing in one issue though? Then again how can one ruin the comic before said comic even comes out? I try not to understand those types of people, it boggles the mind to no end...
  15. ...what is the purpose of this tweet? Ken complaining that because of his strict regulations on storytelling, no one except him is willing to use the characters? I'm sorry you can't let any of your characters grow, develop and evolve beyond their 2 dimensional personalities because you see it as other writers being "wasteful" of your creations. Does ANY creator think like this?
  16. Yeah I know. The first 4 issue story structure is planned as a weekly series though. I do think it was a bad move to release it two weeks early. It throws that planned structure out the window.
  17. Hi! That me! Story structure is clearly going to be different from your examples since it was planned from the get-go as a weekly series. So I see it as a giant size #1 instead of a monthly comic structure. Thats all. Plus I feel i saw some complaints about how Mega Drive #1 ended actually having a hook. So its going to be different person to person. No worries. It literally never has happened till now. I was planning on getting involved with this board again after the issue released; guess this was a good start lol.
  18. This was my tweet, wasn’t meant to bring any thread down. Didn’t expect such a reaction from posting my thoughts. Sorry if it became a headache for ya. That said, don’t think I was invalidating ANY criticism brought to the book outside of those who are already hating it who A) Haven’t read it themselves or B ) for not being immediately “Archie Sonic 2.0”. Did we have a discussion last night? Just wanted to see if it was ya.
  19. Like I said on Twitter, you REALLY are a saint for keeping such a cool head during that whole discussion. I made it my New Years Resolution to not engage with any of Penders' fanbase, you know the 4-5 people who speak for the entire "Archie-Sonic fandom", and it has really been therapeutic for me. Last year I spent a few times trying to convey facts when they just fought back with half-truths and grudges. I would get so upset and angry with it I would be sweating and typing furiously on my phone. And it would just drag on for days with them. I still see so much misinformation from that side but I can't do it anymore, it's not healthy to engage with them. Now I realize I just need to wait it out. They really aren't worth it but I do hope they will see Ken's true colors eventually. Look forward to this; a new Sonic comic is starting despite Penders' best efforts. I'm excited for it, a lot of people are. I'm not going to let that minority of people and their toxicity prevent me from enjoying the hell out of this comic. Ask @Adamis to keep you in check, he does it with me! Lol
  20. Wow I can't possibly imagine why he would want it to release in March...a full month before another type of release... And I seriously doubt he will hit that mark, he seems to be heavily invested in shooting The Republic right now.
  21. Thank you. THANK YOU!!!! I woke up to that response and I just nearly rolled back over saying F it. I’m not responding to him on it. He is impossible plus I’m getting responses from his latest fans which also seem to not understand.
